Exmouth

After a good morning at bowling green marsh I went onto exmouth for a couple of hours between 12:00 and 14:00

Started by looking across to dawlish warren and there was plenty of waders on warren point including 100+ ringed plover 25+ knot 20 sanderling and plenty of Dunlin. There was lots of disturbance due to people walking around the point so decided to do a quick sea watch, 35+ Manx shearwater, plenty of sandwich tern and a few 'commic' terns

On way back to the station stopped of at the recreation ground and had 45+ sandwich tern, 2 common tern and 1 arctic tern

Not a bad days birding

Received news of an osprey and black tern from the viewing platform at bowling green marsh this evening 19:00 (thanks to Gary)
